Scoliosis History

A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.

What type of spinal curvature?:
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
Diagnosis Details:
Diagnosed with a single C-shaped thoracolumbar curve at around age 14.
Told it wouldn't get any worse when in my late teens as I had finished growing.
However, it continued to progress causing many health problems along the way until I finally had surgery on an 80 degree curve at 49 years old.
What curve pattern?:
Single thoracolumbar
Curve Pattern Details:
Left thoracolumbar, single (C-shaped) curve with a loss of lordosis and resulting mild kyphosis.
Had surgery?:
Posterior surgery
Surgery Details:
Instrumented posterior scoliosis correction on August 17th 2006.
Now the proud owner of 2 titanium rods, 17 screws, 2 hooks and 2 crossbars!
Surgery performed by Mr Ashley Cole at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield.
Worn a brace?:
No brace
